$50,000 For The Funeral!
Sam died and left $50,000 in his will for an elaborate funeral.
As the last attenders left, Sam's wife Rose turned to her oldest friend Sadie and said: “Well, I'm sure Sam would be pleased.”
“I'm sure you're right,” replied Sadie, who leaned in close and lowered her voice to a whisper
“Tell me, how much did it really cost?”
“All of it,” said Rose
“No!” Sadie exclaimed
“I mean, it was very nice, but really… $50,000?!”
“The funeral was $6,500
I donated $500 to the church for the priest's services
The food and drinks were another $500
And the rest went towards the memorial stone.”
Sadie computed quickly
“$42,500 for a memorial stone? Exactly how big is it?”
“Seven and a half carats.”
